I'm down .4. Woohoo!!
I'm really trying to rededicate myself to this challenge. I've been all over the place with my eating and weight.

My goal now is to lose 10lbs before Memorial Day. This will take me back to where I was last year. Day 2 and I'm still going strong,(not hard at day 2) however I tend to lose momentum on the weekend.

Lost 3 pounds. Down to 218...not due to good diet and exercise but due to lack of eating because of a family crisis. :(

Still the same. I have good weekdayss then go crazy on the weekends or just one day of the weekend. One time the other day I was 186. I could've cried. Sadly, it didn't keep. If anyone is in NYC, please come to my apartment and shake me!

Not sure if it was joining Weight Watchers, going to a hypnotist for weight loss or my bf changing the battery in his bitch of a talking scale but--- was 145.6 today after being 148 last Sunday!! So everyone take heart. After over a month of a plateau, even with daily exercise, the scale finally budged. Maybe I have turned a corner. And it takes a ton of time and energy recording all my food every single day.

Thanks jj17 but my numbers are reversed. Keeping everyone straight must be as much of a pain in the ass as tracking Weight Watchers points!! Congrats on your continued good numbers.

Italia-- I am with you! The magic 130s-- I was there a year ago and need to get there again.

Kstar-- I feel for you-- I hope things have changed for the better.

I hope everyone has a great week!!

Wibnix - thanks <3

My sister delivered her twins far too early and one twin didn't make it. :(

The good news is that the other twin is doing well and will start feeding today! :)

Back on topic - I am thinking of buying this cute elliptical machine from amazon. I'll try to link it - it gets good reviews and would allow me to exercise while my older daughter is at school and my other daughter is napping...

More good news-- the bitch scale said 144.4 yesterday. I had to fast all day because yesterday was the day I was hypnotized to think I had lap band surgery. Weigh in at hypnotist was 144.6 with my clothes on. Back to exercising today and continuing with Weight Watchers, which continues to amaze me! I would recommend WW for anyone who has reached a plateau and is frustrated with (lack of) weight loss. I also save some points so that I can have a couple of glasses of wine, which has always been my biggest downfall.

I'm down 2.6lbs. That makes me officially down .4 -yes count 'em - .4 lbs from the beginning of the challenge. That's gives me 6.8 lbs to lose in my lose 10 lbs before Memorial Day Challenge. 3 1/2 more weeks so its possible, but I really need to watch what I eat.(and how I type - it's really bad this morning...sorry)

No...! Happy! Happy! You're moving in the right direction! Great job!

Sadly no loss this week. Still at 155 but I expected to be a little bloated this week. Ladies y'all know what I'm talkin' bout right?

Sorry to all the dudes out there. Talk about sports or something. ; )

I would like to officially change my goal to 125. I am determined to reach that goal by July 4. I will post my new weight on Sunday, which will hopefully be around 142.

I hope everyone is doing well. There is something about the warmer weather that makes me want to be bathing suit ready, although not bikini ready like Cassandra.

I just sweated my ass off at Korn and I will be really pissed if I don't weigh around 140 on Sunday.

Edited to state that I only went down .4 pounds at 144.2. I guess my late night snack after Korn did me no favors. I feel like the losers when they only drop a pound.

Korn = my second favorite band in the world. Led by Jonathan Davis. Categorized as Nu Metal.

Anyway, I weighed 143 today which was great. Bad news? I have a terrible cold. This makes me want to not eat since I can't breathe but I don't feel like exercising either. Ugh.

ETA: All the cold worry was for naught cuz I weighed 141.8 yesterday!!!! But then pigged out when I got home from the Lilac Festival :-(.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Where is everybody anyway?

Weird thing is, my stomach is considerably flatter and I'm losing inches. The scale doesn't seem to move though.

WOOHOO down to 179.6!!!! Having the most success now that the season is over. Go figure.

Korn - the band - I should have known that. Major brain fart on my part. I was thinking it was a new workout - like Fran or Diane from Cross fit.

Cher Z perhaps you are gaining a lot of muscle if you're losing inches, etc. I'm still seeing flab even though losing weight. I was hoping to get below 140 this week but we'll see.

Are we supposed to weigh in on a certain day? Because my Weight Watchers weigh-in day is now Saturday (changed by me).

Lots of good things happening lately like new jobs for me, my son, and fiance. Exciting stuff ahead! Including getting down to 125 in time to visit my mom in late August.
